      Hey Dracsharp,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I understand that villain cbets often but we picked a hand with little equity to ck/raise here. There are a lot more better hands that we could raise as a semi-bluff.

      What's your plan if villain bets small on the river? Also was our turn bet for value or a bluff?

      Bluff both, but size on the flop was screwed up had to make the move in like 2 seconds. On flop he will call in pp-s but on turn he is probably mucking most except kk+kq+, so i just gave up.

      He is a true believer in double barreling so unless i have a tpgk+ in this spot, c/r is the only way to take the pot.

      And if he were to bet that river into us?

      Would there be any amount you would call, and why?

      I would only call if its few bb, but he probably not going to turn his busted draw into bluff with 5 bb size.

      I am not the biggest fan of these moves but board rather supports it, can't really go always fit or fold either, wouldn't you ever bluff him here ? This is the closest my hand gets to a semibluff here with the exception of acqc. My cr is 6% overall and he has hud and we played for quite some time.

      Folding if he bets is probably best given that his range can still have a bunch of Kx that can bet there.

      I would bluff him here as well but it would be nice to have hands that have a bit more equity to improve. Even AQss is better here.

      Since our image is tighter vs him we should expect quite a bit of fold equity the first few times.
